We explored a new trail at Mount , right next to Red Rocks. The map said 3 miles for the loop we chose, though we think it was closer to 4. The kids were little troppers, though Finlay faded the last half hour. And, there were no freak outs when we saw a king snake crossing the trail. The hike was followed by meeting little cousin Cal for some delicious ice cream at Little Man.
Our local elementary school operates on a year round school of 9 weeks on 3 weeks off. Isla's first day was July 10. She goes all day Tuesday/Thursdays and 1/2 day Friday. She has a fantastic teacher and is an eager learner. We are so lucky that we can walk her up to the school each day in less than 10 minutes.
We took our 4th annual summer getaway to the Westin at Beaver Creek. As the kids get older, everything gets a bit easier and more fun. The weather was warm and sunny, ideal for hours upon hours of pool time, early dinners on the patio and smores around the firepit.
